    very sweet looking install looks very oem! , i have just ordered my bezel from rich now, looks the best ive seen, and the howtos link he gives seems to cover all the bases

    anyone attempted this on a saloon, it doesnt look that accessable from the boot to the car interiour?

    Thanks guys!

    Rich does a fantastic job on those bezels! I got to see one at one of our Atlanta meets last year. I could see that it is well worth the money. You'll have to post pics when you get it all in.

    BimmaDrew: I note that you connected a pulsed signal into your Carnetix for remote-activated power. Which wire did you tap?

    I connected it to one of the wires connected to the rear tail lights. I don't remember which one, but I tested it to see what it did and it was the one that goes to a positive 5v for about a second when I unlock my car with my remote. I hasn't failed me yet!

    Thanks. I considered that, but was concerned that depressing the brakes during startup might interfere with it. I guess not. Anyway, I just found out that the fuel door harness also provides a 12v pulse when disarming.

    Yeah, I had my worries too since it said there was a short time-frame that the voltage could be positive for the signal to work. So I tested the line with the lights on and it was still nothing unless I unlocked the doors. And don't worry, because the voltage on the line is only when you unlock the doors...not when you open the trunk or lock the doors (those are seprate lines).
